Chief Executive - MuirCroft Housing Association

Southampton, Hybrid
Circa £60,000 - £70,000 depending on experience
Closing on 24 June 2024

We are working in partnership with MuirCroft Housing Association, a not-for-profit social landlord providing sheltered housing in Southampton, who are seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to lead on and bring a new perspective to an already successful charity.

In existence for over 40 years, MuirCroft provides sheltered housing to rent for over 60's and today supports well over 100 tenants. But MuirCroft is about much more than just its buildings, it’s a thriving, happy community of people living their own lives but with the support of both staff and fellow tenants.

With a track record of successful senior appointments, and with specialist skills in the sector the new Chief Executive will lead a well-structured, rigorous, and fully supported service. 

The successful candidate will demonstrate the following:

  • Experience of senior leadership in an organisation or major service in a relevant field, with a proven track record in both strategic and operational management 
  • Understanding of the social housing operating environment, the regulatory framework provided by the Regulator of Social Housing and other sector regulators.
  • Experience of developing financial and non-financial management information, and have excellent budget preparation, setting, monitoring and financial forecasting.
  • Effectively work with Board or Management Committee to develop exciting and realistic strategies that deliver the vision and objectives who can lead the development of organisational and cultural change.

The ideal candidate will be an effective team player and 'people person' who is able to demonstrate the highest levels of integrity and standards and use their skills and experience of the small staff team, to best effect.  You will have the ability to work on your own initiative and be able to lead and positively represent the organisation.  The new Chief Executive Officer will be an ambassador, playing a key role in building effective relationships with internal and external stakeholders.  You will have excellent communication skills and the ability to motivate, lead and inspire a team.  The new Chief Executive Officer will embrace regular daily tasks, as well as formulating and implementing forward-looking strategy.  

Applications should include your CV and supporting statement.
